. >> i'm sorry, jim, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs. i like pbs, i love big bird, i actually like you too. >> reporter: one of the most surprising parts of the president's performance was what he did not say. no mention of romney's infamous 47% remark, no talk of bain capital, nothing about romney's own taxes. he did play the "romney is a hypocrite" card when it comes to health care. >> the irony is that we've seen this model work really well. in massachusetts. because governor romney did a good thing, working with democrats in the state to set up what is essentially the identical model and, as a consequence, people are covered there. it hasn't destroyed job. >> reporter: romney, who ran from his massachusetts health care plan during the gop primaries, now used it to tack to the middle for the general election. >> i like the way we did it in massachusetts. i like the fact that in my state, we had republicans and democrats come together and work together. what you did, instead, was to push through a plan without a single republican vote. >> reporter: and romney's countless hours of
were fired off during the debate. the highest point was jim lehrer said let's not when mitt romney wanted to move on to another topic. >> ben knows this because he head all of those tweets. >> exactly. there were people all over the country talking about his tweets. we'll talk about that story later. >> and john travolta and olivia newton john are swinging together for the first time in 35 years. they are putting out a charity holiday music album titled "this christmas". there are also other guest artists appearing on the album including kenny g. >> that is a who's who of musics will never listen to ever. >> john and olivia do the hits. >> you got it. >> holy cow do i not want to hear that.

and instead listen to substance. i appreciate the fact athat jim lehrer asked questions about substance. i appreciated that i was able to ask obama about obamacare. i asked, why is it that the middle class is still buried in this country? why we have millions of people out of work? why is it that half of our children coming out of college cannot find a job? why is it that when he took office, 32 million people are on food stamps? i asked him those questions. you heard his answers. as a result of those answers, the american people recognize that he and i stand for something very different. i will help the american people get good jobs and a bright future. [cheers and applause] even more importance than what was happening in the past was what he plans on doing for the future. he had the chance to describe his vision for the future. what it was was more of the same. he described a series of ideas that we have heard before. he talks about a stimulus and hiring more government workers and having the government making investments. of course, he talks about raising taxes. they plan to raise taxes
debate is in that policy. what are some of the questions that we might expect to hear? >> and jim letterer, the moderator to lay down a format on the economy in the first section. they have questions to start off the discussion, and then a discussion, free flowing, it's supposed to stay on the topic matter that they've agreed to, which is domestic issues. so, i don't expect any wavering off into foreign policy, libya or afghanistan, you don't know that that possibly could happen, but it's supposed to say pretty structured, but the discussion is something new, so le herrer can press and there's a lot of free flow in those 15 minutes, so, a lot of things can happen in a short time. >> harris: with the time i have left with you. i want to focus on style and the moderated debates before, did a beautiful job in the g.o.p. primary i might ad. from your experience i'm hearing that the candidates should work in humor. humor can back fire, can't it? >> sure, if it's too staged, if it's hokey, it can come off as just not genuine. and all of these folks who are out there telling governor rom
and basically went out in a car with jim gallagher, go to the school and the personally interviewed a lot of these men. not the man who came in through other means, such as eddie who came in an athletic scholarship, and i think this -- there we go. i sat in a coffee shop one night and decided he was going to get in, the two of them. and then he presented a bill who was a president at the time, which was for a college at the time, it was quite a cross to bear. what he was looking for, i asked him, how do you decide? anyone who is a parent in the room knows that intelligence is not necessarily something that is a hallmark of success. when you talk to father brooks, he was looking for leadership qualities and was looking for driving people who have work ethic. people who were hoping to reach beyond their grasp, black-and-white, and if you may not know, he was also fighting to get women in the college. sadly, for the class of 1972, i do not believe they arrived until after the fall of that year. that was after president brooks said he managed to shake up the trustee board and get some people
and fox news became a republican jim, and msnbc became a liberal channel. and so you have people getting information that was as different as the political views but and i think that contribute to polarization but i think it's a great question and i don't really have, these are ideas but i don't have a complete answer for you. >> do you have an idea that chief justice roberts feels about citizens united? >> i know he voted for it. and, that's a pretty good tipoff right there. [laughter] you know, and he, i talk about this in "the oath." there was a case out of arizona about a public finds, sort of a successor case, not as big a deal by people asking are they going to cut back on citizens united? are they embarrassed? are the words? no. if you believe that money is speech, and that's more important frankly than the appropriations, but if you believe that money is speech, you pretty much have to deregulate the american campaign. any attempt to limit how much money you can give, to whom you can give money. so i think if the court remains as currently configured we are going to see more deci
. in jim marshall, the new president of the institute of peace, which i am delighted to tell you, and i am pleased everyone is here for an import -- to hear about and the port project that has been sponsored by the institute for peace. my job is to introduce steve heideman. he has directed the center for democracy and civil studies -- civil society at georgetown. he -- he is a terrific asset for the institute. this project is driven by syrians, with technical assistance and other kinds of assistance from the institute and a sister institute in germany. it is important these efforts are driven by local populations, things that are handed down from the united states did not work all that well. we are pleased that you are here. i hope you have lots of questions, and if i can turn this over to you -- >> thank you para much, and let me add my welcome to you. we are delighted to see you here this morning. it will be an interesting conversation about syria after assad the challenges of managing a transition period as jim mentioned, the event this morning is in many ways a culmination of a project
. >> it was more british style than american-style, which was good. >> do i think that jim lehrer was a weak moderator? yes. that is okay. it is not about the moderator. it is about the candidates, not the moderator showboating. i thought it was good. >> if you asked both sides, the romney folks would say romney -- irani folks would say obama talked longer and the obama side would say romney talk longer. >> president obama talked about 5 minutes or so -- 4.5 minutes more than romney. but i think romney was better. less was more. on the side of the room, yes, sir. >> i was wondering, have you seen any differences in the senate races where republicans associate with the tea party? if not, how could turn out affect that? -- how could turnout affect that? >> there are a lot of important races in november, not just the presidential. i do not know the answer. there are a lot of very close senate races, like charlie was talking about, in states that product -- in states that romney is probably going to win. missouri, north dakota, arizona. there are 4 states where democratic senate candidates are r
of it. obama cares on my list. i use that term respectfully. i'm sorry, jim, i'm going to stop the subsidies to pbs. i like pbs and big bird and i like you, too, but i'm not going to keep spending money on things i have to borrow money to pay for it. martha: big bird woke and heard that. users posted 17,000 big bird tweets a minute. one such account @firedbigbird. bill: a year ago in a conversation with governor romney he said when i get one-on-one in the president he's going to say x and i'll say y. he will say "a" and i'll say "b." that was a year ago. he has been waiting a year. if you look at these snap polls. oftentimes this is an emotional reaction. whether it's cbs or cnn there was a clear winner in this debates. martha: governor romney had take and lot of heat from conservative watchers of all of this who said he had yet to make a passionate conservative argument throughout the course of this campaign. i think those folks will be satisfied with what they saw last night. he was ago that and connected to what he was saying. he made his points. and he turned that key in a
